My fun night. CMQG

What a fun night. I met soooo many people.
I hope I didn't scare anyone away!

I have a couple of disclaimers about the pics:
We asked if we could make pictures first.
I was so busy looking I missed pictures of some great quilts!!
These are just a fraction of what was shown.
There was a HUGE turn out for the meeting.

This is ModernJax's quilt and I believe she followed a quilt along on Red Barn Co. via flickr.
It was a great quilt. I love the Rainy Days and Monday fabric line by Riley Blake.
I have some and haven't picked a pattern yet.

 This is a sewing machine cover from the latest Quilters Home mag. Looked very cool.

 Oh My...this was the first time I came to know Amanda. She was making Single Girl by Denyse Schmidt.
It was so inspiring. And she was machine quilting it with 1/2 lines.

Paula, shocked ALL of us with this quilt.  Tokyo Subway Quilt Along with Oh! Frannson.

 Clever is all I have to say.
You should have seen the back (too busy looking and yep I forgot to photograph DOH!).

Cristin's scraps scraps? huh? I am thinking that should be an ENTIRE quilt for MY bed.

And finally a Modern Jax's quilt...I believe her first quilt, though not her first finish.
I happen to be real good at that...start stuff...finish it WAY later.

All in all, it was a wonderful night of meeting tons of new to me people and getting inspired to create modern quilts.
If you live within driving distance of Columbus, make modern quilts, seriously consider attending the next meeting of the Columbus Modern Quilt Guild.
 You'll be glad you did.

I can't believe that someone got that Tokyo subway quilt done so quickly!

Lots of wonderful quilts. Would love to be in a guild, but the one we have is full, so they don't take new members.

It does look like fun! I think I might look into joining a Guild here soon. I just found out about it yesterday.

Love that last quilt...but they're all beautiful!

Some of the fabric in Mooderjax's quilt came from my stash... she was in need of contrast and I had it... so glad to see the quilt all done.
